Team Ground Rules and Guidelines
What are the general expectations for all members of the team?
Team the following were suggested by my academic counselor George Smerda:
1. Correspondence and meetings will be conducted through the team forum. Lack of participation in the
team forum for 72 hours will result in an email sent to the professor denoting that particular team
member's lack of participation, unless noted by the member prior to absence or by emergency phone call.
Every team member should make the effort to participate daily, allowing for each member’s opinion to be
heard and for projects to be finished in a timely manner. Team members who know they will be absent on
particular days should post any ideas, topic choices, or individual submissions prior to their absence.
2. Any e-mail communication between members regarding course material must be copied to all team
members and a thread must be posted stating that this has occurred.
3. E-mail and phone contact is for emergency communication when computers are down or a team
member needs to be notified of a situation. Any phone communication will be posted to the team conflict
resolution thread to inform and update other team members.
4. All work for the assignments will be posted to the team forum no later than 6pm central time three days
before established due date. The final draft for the assignment should be compiled and submitted to the
team forum for review no later than 6pm central time on the established due date. The class syllabus can
be referenced for specific due dates related to each project. Lack of participation during projects may
result in that individual’s name being withdrawn from the final project, and notification sent to the
instructor.

5. Every team member must completely understand the team’s expectations of his or her contribution to
the final project. Every team member should post individual contributions correctly using APA format, and
be available to correct their portions during review/edit days, before final submission. Any plagiarism is
unacceptable and will be brought to the instructor’s attention.
2.Expectations for Time Management and Involvement
(Participation, communication with the team, accessibility, etc.)
1. Team members should check the team forum daily for any new post and updates. Teammates should
read all posts in the team forum.
2. Main source of communication should be conducted in the team forum. Other sources maybe e-mail,
instant messaging or phone call.
Ensuring Fair and Even Contribution and Collaboration
What strategy will you use to ensure that all team members are contributing and collaborating
appropriately?
The strategy that I think the team should use is to evenly divide the work that needs to be done on the
team assignments.
Describe the communication strategy you will use if a team member is not contributing and collaborating
effectively.
1. The main method of communication should be conducted in the team forum. Other forms of
communication could be instant messaging, phone calls or e-mail but these interactions will have to be
documented in the team forum for all team members to read.
2. We will stay in touch through our team forum
3. We should check the forum daily.
4. If there is an emergency, the teammate should either send an e-mail to each member or call the team
leader to let everyone in the group know he or she will be absent.
How will the team manage conflicts between team members?
1. Potential conflicts may include a team member not meeting up to expectations, a team member not
showing understanding of another’s circumstances, or a team member not actively participating in
discussions/projects.
2. A teammate not participating as equally as the other teammates.
3. A team member not directly involved in the conflict will mediate the conflict. If possible, the team
leader should be the mediator and/or arbitrator for conflicts within the team. Team members will agree
to a working relationship that entertains all points of view. As a final attempt to resolve conflict, the
instructor may be informed of the incident.
4. Address the problem with the teammate. If that does not work, contact the instructor to advise him of
the situation.
Special Considerations
What do you, as a team, agree will make this team experience different from past team experiences?
1. Having new team members will make this a different experience.
2. The new and more difficult team assignment is also a difference.
